Capitol Reef National Park

This is a really beautiful park that we only passed through, but don't miss this park or the scenic Hwy 12 drive. There is much more to experience here if you have the time.
This one is a short hike up to a scenic view of the canyon.
The Gifford Homestead
Stop at the Gifford Homestead which is famous for their pies
Scenic Highway 12
The drive to and from this park along scenic Hwy 12 was well worth the extra time it took to get to Moab. At times it looked like something out of a sci-fi movie.
There is a picnic area located just before the Gifford Homestead along the Scenic Drive.
The petroglyphs in this park are after the scenic route on the way back along Route 24.There is a parking area and a boardwalk with a nice viewing area.
